Agents of the Atesh Ukrainian partisan movement have detected activity by russian invaders in Yevpatoria, Crimea. The occupiers use the city for unloading military equipment as well as for personnel transportation

The Atesh spotted out activity at a repair base as well as a military depot in Yevpatoria area.

"Our agent managed to get close to the military depot, which is located in Novoozerne, on the shore of Donuzlav lake. We know that there was a repair base as well as an ammunition depot here, which were used by russian group in the southern area," the Atesh reported on its Telegram channel.

At the moment, a lot of embankments have been made along the perimeter of the territory specifically for military equipment to be stationed there, which points to the presence of the occupiers.

One of the Atesh agents also recorded the process of transshipment of old Soviet 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled howitzer at a freight railway station in Yevpatoria. A dozen and a half howitzers were recorded in total.

The Atesh shared the coordinates of place where the howitzers were unloaded: 45.214129, 33.368068

The equipment is probably heading to the left bank of the Kherson Oblast, where russian troops are conducting an active offensive against the positions of the Defense Forces of Ukraine.

The Atesh agents will continue to follow this echelon throughout Crimean peninsula as well as Kherson Oblast.

At the same time, partisans detected movement of military equipment along with personnel on board near Yevpatoria.

"Our agents were chasing a convoy of Kamaz trucks at the north of the city," the statement reads.

The Atesh provided the coordinates of the convoy: 45.253435, 33.355944

It should be noted that this movement comes in the context of severe frontline casualties. Invaders face significant strikes by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It brings significant losses in occupiers` ranks. The lack of proper commanding exacerbates the situation, creating chaos and disorganization in the occupiers` ranks.

This factor exacerbates the negative impact on the russian combat capability and creates opportunities for more successful counterattacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Defense Express reported that Ukrainian partisans had infiltrated Tula arms plant in russia.
